As you get ready for your week, ask yourself: Did you take your morning dump?
The Top Line
The Avalanche and Penguins are playing what looks to be a pretty decent game this evening. NBC, Sports Illustrated, The Local Take #1, The Local Take # 2
Columbus 3, Vancouver 1 - Luongo or Schneider? No! It was Curtis McElhinney the whole time!
Nashville 3, Winnipeg 1 - It makes sense that these two are now in the same division, doesn't it? Winnipeg really is the Nashville of the north.
Anaheim 6, Dallas 3 - Bobby Ryan who?

Hey, I just saw something about this.
BEST OF MAXIM
Jamie Benn had one of the most memorable fights of the 2012-13 season when he battled Joe Thornton. Though that fight will be almost impossible to top, Benn returns this week at the top spot after a nice scrap with Anaheim's Francois Beauchemin. Where does Benn's teammate Antoine Roussel rank on this week's list after his fight with Matt Irwin? 5. Robert Bortuzzo...
FRISCO, Texas -- Unfortunately, Kari Lehtonen knows all about the dreaded lower-body injury. The 29-year-old Dallas Stars goaltender missed 12 games in fall 2011 due to a groin injury and the talented Finn suffered a similar injury in a win at Winnipeg on Oct. 11, a game where after 35 minutes and he had stopped all 21 Jet shots he had faced, Lehtonen felt something was not right...
The Dallas Stars have activated goaltender Kari Lehtonen from injured reserve.
Dallas also Monday recalled defenseman Aaron Rome from his conditioning assignment with the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League and assigned goaltender Jack Campbell to the AHL squad.
Lehtonen has missed the past five games after being placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 11 when he suffered...
Dan Ellis has problems. Not job problems - he's the Dallas Stars' backup, and he's... ok, fine. He has job problems. He has just one win and three losses so far, a .895 save percentage and a huge 3.60 GAA. Perhaps misplaced priorities are why he's having issues: If you didn't laugh at Dan Ellis for 10 minutes already after I implored you to, just look...
The glow of the Dallas Stars' resilient win over previously unbeaten San Jose faded over the weekend. The team dropped both ends of its California road trip to Los Angeles and Anaheim to fall to 3-5-0 on the young season. The Stars have lost four of their last five.
Last night in Anaheim, goaltender Jack Campbell deserved a better fate in his NHL debut. His final stat line...
from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
Stars coach Lindy Ruff said injured goalie Kari Lehtonen (lower body) is not ready to play and will not be activated from IR on Sunday. That means the Stars have a choice between playing Dan Ellis on a quick back-to-back or giving Jack Campell his NHL debut.
While Ruff would not say what his choice is, it’s pretty clear Campbell...
The Dallas Stars have suffered through and up-and-down start to the 2013-14 NHL season and head coach Lindy Ruff is ready to make some changes on the blue line. Alex Goligoski and Sergei Gonchar have both left much to be desired with their play in all three zones and could be scratched for today’s game against the Anaheim Ducks.
Dallas raised some eyebrows when they traded for...
Tyler Seguin: All right, Boston, Sox in the World Series! WOOOO SOX LET'S GO! BOSTON STRONG!
Jamie Benn: Uh, dude
Seguin: What's up man, you looking to get WASTED? The SOX are in the World Series. Let's go down to Fenway and bang some baseball fans!
Seguin: I know, I know, I shouldn't say that stuff out loud.
Benn: No. You don't...
Sometimes a player has so much talent that it’s easy to forget how young they are. Case in point: Tyler Seguin when he played for the Boston Bruins. They drafted him with the second-overall selection in 2010 watched him grow into the team’s top goal scorer two years later and handed him a massive $34.5 million deal.
Then it seems that the team left him alone with his new-found...
Curtis McElhinney was solid in goal Sunday for Columbus as the Blue Jackets found a way to beat Vancouver. McElhinney, the journeyman goaltender signed to a one-way contract this summer to be the team's backup, stopped 37 pucks and limited the high-powered Canucks to one goal.
I thought not bringing in competition for McElhinney this summer was a mistake. McElhinney had done...
The Ducks managed to pull off a 6-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Sunday to keep their home record perfect and extend their winning streak to seven games.
Trailing 3-1 after the first period to a team who had played the night before, it looked like all good things were going to come to an end. But that is why you have a coach and three periods to play.
GAME PREVIEW (1:00 PM CDT)
Coming off a disappointing followup to a rousing win on Thursday night, the Dallas Stars (3-3-0) are back in action tonight in the second half of their weekend road trip to California. Tonight, Dallas takes on the Anaheim Ducks (6-1-0). Game time is 7:00 p.m. Central. The match will be televised locally on Fox Sports Southwest.
This is the first of...
